While Nana Bhai left a void when he passed away, and Faraaz’s life ended suddenly at such a tender age, they live on in our hearts.
The fact that Latifur Rahman, Shamim Bhai to us all, is no longer among us still feels unreal.
My connection with Latifur Rahman (Shamim) goes back to pre-partition times when both our families lived in Calcutta (Kolkata), though we never actually met then.
Two years ago today, we lost Mr Latifur Rahman. He was a man of immense integrity and determination. He was an ethical entrepreneur, a champion of the free media, and a family man.
Latifur Rahman, or “Shamim bhai” as we knew him, is no longer with us today. In his absence, the business community in Bangladesh will never be the same again. His guidance and cool temperament will be greatly missed.
With the death of founding chairman and CEO of Transcom Group Latifur Rahman, the country has lost a business leader who lived by the highest standards of business integrity and was a protector of professional and independent media.
Former chief justice Latifur Rahman, who led the caretaker government in 2001, passes away at Samarita Hospital in Dhaka at the age of 81.
The kulkhwani of Faraaz Ayaaz Hossain, who was brutally killed along with 19 other hostages in a militant attack at a Dhaka café on July 1, is to be held on July 10 after Asr prayers.
